One such junkie, Richard MacManus, will be replacing an OPML-to-HTML transformation of his site's topic list with an XML-to-HTML conversion:
My ideal is to do the XSL transformation on the server-side, rather than the client (browser) side. The reason for this is that due to the proliferation of different browsers on the Web, it'll be a nightmare to second-guess how all of them will process the XSL transformation. Whereas with a server-side transformation, I know how my server will handle the task.
Interesting project, but as I asked him, it seems like a waste not to use Radio. UserTalk's XML verbs can read the data and render it as a static HTML page, upstreaming it automatically, leaving less for the Web server to think about.
Thanks for your suggestion, I will look into the UserTalk XML verbs. I might try both otions: Radio verbs and an XSLT using PHP. One of the other motivations for me doing this is I want to learn XSLT so I can use it in my job in future, so doing a topic-based navigation on my blog is a good way to "learn by doing".
ps I like the title "information-remix junkie". Sounds like a character in a William Gibson book :-)
